Thank you to those who contributed to the Draft City to Gardens Way - Connectivity & wayfinding plan. We are collating your feedback and will report back shortly with what the community has told us.


The City of Hobart is planning to improve pedestrian and cyclist connections between the Hobart CBD and the Royal Tasmanian Botanical Gardens. The proposed path upgrades will establish much needed linkages between the Bridge of Remembrance, the new Rose Garden Bridge over Brooker Avenue and the Botanical Gardens, and will give walkers two distinct route options to travel to and from the Royal Tasmanian Botanical Gardens, with one of the two routes being suitable for cyclists.

The Draft City to Gardens Way Connectivity and Wayfinding Plan proposes to:

  • Link a number of existing formal and informal footpaths between the Bridge of Remembrance, the new Rose Garden Bridge and the proposed new main entrance to the Royal Tasmanian Botanical Gardens. There may be some loss of parking between the entrance to Government House and the Gardens to allow for the establishment of safe pedestrian access
  • Upgrade existing formal paths along Davies Avenue to establish a safe pedestrian link from the Doone Kennedy Hobart Aquatic Centre to the Tasmanian Cricket Association Oval.
  • Establish or improve five pedestrian crossings to ensure the safe movement of people across Davies Avenue, Lower Domain Road and Upper Carriage Drive.
  • Develop a lighting strategy for Davies Avenue that will promote safe pedestrian access during all hours.

The City of Hobart is now seeking community feedback on the Draft Plan, including local residents and visitors to the area.

Get involved and have your say in the following ways:

The feedback form closes on 9 April 2020.

(Please note: in the interests of public health and social distancing, the City of Hobart has made the decision to cancel the listening posts for this project)
